Ivy's story

My name is Ivy. I love reading, singing, listening to music, and traveling. In high school, I was a member of the math club for four years. I am a go-getter and I believe that I can do that which seems impossible. These reasons and the fact that mathematics is my best subject have made me love actuarial science. The course is basically about calculation of premiums in a financial organization. Given a chance, I will be assured to be in the right path. I know it is a very tough course, but I also know that I will manage to do it and get the best out of it.

I chose to do actuarial science at Strathmore University, since it has high academic standards with highly qualified lecturers, high discipline, and adequate learning materials and facilities. The university also has a conducive environment for learning. It is situated in an area that is easily accessible from all sides of the city. Lastly, it is recognized by most potential employers.

My motivation in life has been my parents and brothers. They are always optimistic and very hardworking. They have taught me to be focused. One day, I would like to be a renowned person who will give back to the society what it has offered me. I will be sure to help a child in need as you have helped me because life is all about giving. Thank you in advance.
